Newcastle beaten by injury-time Wolves goal after DeAndre Yedlin sending off

Ten-man Newcastle United were beaten 2-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday when Matt Doherty scored in the fifth minute of added time.

The home side suffered from having United States international defender DeAndre Yedlin sent off for a professional foul with more than half an hour to play.

Manager Rafa Benitez was furious, apparently believing a covering defender was in position to prevent an attempt on goal.

Promoted Wolves, who had beaten Chelsea 2-1 on Wednesday after six games without a win, went ahead in the 17th minute with Diogo Jota's second goal of the week.

Newcastle equalised six minutes later when Salomon Rondon, having crashed a free kick against the bar, crossed for Ayoze Perez to score.

But Doherty's last-gasp header from close range pushed Wolves into the top half of the table and left Benitez's side 15th, three points above the bottom three.
